Did you know that Maxine Medina appeared on Angeline Quinto's movie Beauty in the Bottle?
And that, when she's not busy modeling, her other passion is designing interiors?
An alumna of the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID), the beauty queen and her groupmates became part of an exhibit titled Globalscapes in 2014, as part of their final school requirements.
With artist Alfred Galvez, her group came up with a Mexican-themed space featuring bold colors, striking patterns, and murals.
The beauty queen proudly shared this on her Instagram account, "Glad to work with most greatest muralist in the Philippines! #ALFREDGALVEZ. Yes I learn a lot from you. I know its just one hour of chitchatting but its my pleasure to have you here! Huugzzz!"
According to the group's portfolio, "Mexican designs are always beaming with life and color, drawing inspiration from their long history combining their pre- and post-colonial influences.
"With a contemporary approach, we manifest the Mexican culture that is today with our rustic finishes, exuberant colors, and shapes."
Here's the sketch of their Mexican-inspired design:

The final look:
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) browsed through Maxine's feed, and found her version of a "perfect spot to sit close and snug..."
Meanwhile, this "gentleman's hangout place" features "warm and cool" colors.
Her latest project was this room, which still is a work in progress.
Good job, Maxine!
